M41A1 Pulse Rifle is perfect for a bughunt – in short, controlled bursts

I can’t believe Aliens is 25 years old. I’m not sure Giovanni Tuzzi built this life-size M41A1 Pulse Rifle to celebrate the movie’s anniversary, but it’s certainly awesome.


Giovanni’s rifle includes several working functions, including triggers, cocking handle, pumping grip, and removable magazine.

    cjedwards47, Yours is made with plates mostly. And I know the details are different but what I meant was that the basic build of this one, use of slopes, construction of barrel etc. It’s not similar, it’s the same.

    @Havoc, don’t get me wrong–I think I like your rendition slightly better (even better than my own). I think it’s a shame that yours was not blogged here.
    However, the use of a 45 degree slope brick to create a 45 degree slope and the use of a 2×2 round brick to create something round are hardly novel concepts. If you look closely, his barrel is all 2×2 round bricks, while yours uses some 2×2 round plates, a wheel hub, and some hinges. If anything, I would say the 1×4 brick with the slot in it is the most relevant similarity between the two.

    I just think there are too many similarities to be a coincidence but I guess it’s a common case in our ‘profession’ that many MOCs look alike.
